About the Book

Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall (1867-1941) was famous for her 1905 children’s history of England, Our Island Story: A History of England for Boys and Girls.

The book was a bestseller, was printed in numerous editions, and for fifty years was the standard and much-loved book by which children learned the history of England. The book is still to be found in schools and homes, but the last printing was in 1953 and it went out of print in the 1960s.

In 2005, an alliance of the Civitas think-tank and various national newspapers brought the book back into print, with the aim of sending a free copy to each of the UK’s primary schools.
